New Champagne Experiences from one of my absolute favorite producers Pierre Peters is always a very special experience. And when it comes to Prestige Champagne Les Chetillons, time stands still for a moment when tasting this divine wine.

Those of you who has followed my wineblogg a while probably know that Pierre Peters was named producer of the year in 2011. The estate is managed by the charismatic and passionate Rodolphe Peters who manages and develops the family-owned champagne house in the best way. The new vintages is releasing a clear signal that there is even more to gain from this already amazing producer. And below Champagne confirms this in a magically good way.

Pierre Peters Cuvée Speciale Les Chétillons 2006

A monumental Champagne!
The aroma is complex with hints of citrus, pear, nougat and minerals affected by the world's class chalk.

The unique taste is dry and in addition to the magic minerals it's combined with orange, lemon, yellow apples and delicious chocolate flavors along with an unique acidity made ​​for food. The flavor is deliciously long and with a complex endless nuances.

This is one of my absolute favorite Champagnes who already now is in great shape and will be developed into a monumental Champagne over time. You can certainly drink it now at very special occasions. But promise me, if so, to buy more bottles to open 4-5 years time. For you to experience God's most precious gift in the form of this golden liquid fruit. And a special thanks to the producer for giving us in Sweden (as loyal customers) a ranson from this small production to be shared across the globe.

Cheers and golf cap off to Maestro Rodolphe for this masterpiece. And still waiting for the 2008 vintage that will be the best one ever perhaps.
